To delineate National Parks within the province of British Columbia, for cartographic and analytical purposes. Local_Name has been added to facilitate identification and labelling of individual parks within the Southern Gulf Islands National Park Reserve of Canada.
Administrative boundaries were compiled from Legal Surveys Division's cadastral datasets and survey records archived in the Canada Lands Survey Records. Canada Lands Administrative Boundaries (CLAB) were adjusted to match British Columbia's authoritative base mapping features.
Prior to April, 2017, the source for the geometry and attributes for CLAB National Parks was the Federal GeoGratis “National Framework Canada Lands Administrative Boundaries Level 1 - British Columbia” dataset. Beginning April, 2017, National Park boundaries have been matched to British Columbia’s authoritative base mapping features.

Comments: This dataset provides the administrative boundaries of National Parks and National Park Reserves within the province of British Columbia. Administrative boundaries were compiled from Legal Surveys Division's cadastral datasets and survey records archived in the Canada Lands Survey Records. Canada Lands Administrative Boundaries (CLAB) were adjusted to match British Columbia's authoritative base mapping features. The Fresh Water Atlas (FWA) was used for streams, rivers, coastlines, and height of land. The Integrated Cadastral Fabric (ICF) was used for parcel boundaries. Tantalis Cadastre was used where ICF parcels were not available.
